We are visiting Switzerland in end of Jan for 4 days, or possible 5 days. Will arrive Zurich, then base at Bern. We want to visit the cities and Alps. But since there are so many mounts there, which one is the best to visit? Especially it will be Winter time.
Here is my tentative plan, can you please help me if it workable?
Day 1: arrive Zurich in the morning, sightseeing the city for half day. Then go to Bern (use Swiss Pass), couple hours sightseeing if possible.
Day 2: Go to Lucerne. Take train to visit mount platus or mount Tilits, which one worth visit? Come back Lucerne in the afternoon, and do sightseeing of the town. Return to Bern at night.
Day 3: Go to Geneva, sightseeing of the city in the morning. Go to Lausanne in the afternoon, quick sightseeing there, go back to Bern at night. Can we visit these two cities in one day? We are not meseum fans, so didn't plan go for any.
Day 4: Go to Zermatt, see Matterhorn from the town. Go back to Bern in the afternoon, sightseeing Bern if there is time.
Day 5: Leave from Zurich.
Thanks very much if anybody could help me on this plan. Or if you think there is any other good place worth visit? Do I need to add one more day for my trip? A 9 year old boy will be traveling with me.
Thank you very much.
